Recovery kiosk

Safeguard for Privileged Passwords provides a recovery kiosk with these options.

Table 266: Recovery Kiosk options
Option Description
Appliance information Allows you to view basic appliance information.

Power options

These options allow you to remotely restart or shut down the appliance.
Admin password reset Allows you to reset the bootstrap administrator's password to its initial value.
Factory reset from recovery kiosk

Allows you to recover from major problems or to clear the data and configuration settings on the appliance.

Caution: Care should be taken when performing a factory reset against an appliance, because this operation removes all data and audit history, returning it to its original state when it first came from the factory. The appliance must go through configuration again as if it had just come from the factory. For more information, see Setting up One Identity Safeguard for Privileged Passwords for the first time.

In addition, performing a factory reset may change the default SSL certificate and default SSH host key.

Support bundle Allows you to generate and send a support bundle to a Windows share.

    • Speed: 115200
